It’s been a busy sum­mer, but I’ve final­ly fin­ished “On Shad­owed Wings,” the first Ash Grove tie-in short sto­ry. It works fine as a stand-alone if you haven’t read the nov­els (for shame!), but if you’re already famil­iar with the char­ac­ters, you’ll get a kick out of see­ing them about ten years before the action of The Shad­ow and the Rose takes place.RONE award SoS 2012 You can down­load the epub here (On Shad­owed Wings) or have your choice of for­mats at Smash­words–again, all free!

I’m also delight­ed to announce that Sea of Secrets won the 2012 RONE (Reward of Nov­el Excel­lence) award in the mys­tery cat­e­go­ry from InD’­Tale mag­a­zine! Isn’t it pret­ty?
